NEW YORK (AP) — Thursday's GOP debate drew 11.1 million viewers to Fox Business Network, according to the Nielsen ratings company.

That clash of Republican presidential candidates was the sixth for the GOP in this election cycle, and was the least-watched thus far. Last month's faceoff, aired on CNN, was seen by 18.2 million.

The season's first GOP debate, aired in August on the Fox News Channel, was the most-watched for either party, with 24 million. December's Democratic debate, aired by ABC, was the least-watched overall, with 8 million viewers.

On Sunday, the third Democratic debate is scheduled to be telecast on NBC.
